The soft geotextile snippets of FSGeoTEX remain active as a cushioning agent for many years, unlike the stiff, thin green textiles or carpet fibers often used in other geotextile footings, which don’t add any cushioning and cannot hold and retain any moisture.

FSGeoTEX geotextile synthetic sand additive footing consists of polyester needle felt and fibers. Once the specific desired blend is determined, it is precisely blended during the manufacturing process. Because of the textiles’ quality, only a minimal amount is needed to improve the arena surface in new and existing jumping and dressage arenas.

FSGeoTEX is the sand additive of choice for top professional equestrians because it:

  • Adds spring to the arena footing, reducing concussion
  • Gives stability and consistency to the arena surface
  • Retains moisture and reduces dust
  • Contains NO post consumer/ recycled ingredients, so you and your horse can breath in fresh air
    and not fibers from recycled carpet shreds
  • Lasts longer than competitors’ alternatives (like stiff, thin green textiles or carpet fibers)


Cushioning Every Step

The Perfect Balance of Elasticity and Stability

Our footing specialists carefully select the components of our geotextile fiber synthetic sand additives to balance out cushioning and stability to prevent over-compaction of the arena footing.


Stability You and Your Horse Can Rely On

Our synthetic sand additives add sheer strength and spring to provide a solid landing with each footfall, reducing the risk of jarring and repetitive injuries.

Impact Absorption
